It was a pleasure and an honor to judge this year’s Camera Works show. I was impressed by the quality and diversity of the submissions, and delighted to see such a range of expression, from traditional and alternative processes and experiments with digital materials to highly personal multimedia work. I’m glad to see photography used as such a creative tool, and happy this work finds a home at the Ridgefield Guild of Artists. — Rebecca Robertson, Juror

Photography has exploded as the hottest medium in the art world! From the silver gelatin black and white print, to the visual delight of digital art, to the storytellers of videographers – there are no boundaries. CameraWorks 2017, a Juried Exhibition, is designed to be an exploration of all photographic arts from the most traditional to the least conventional. We welcome all formats – black and white or color, film or digital, photo collage, montage and videos. This exhibition is open to all.
